O============================================================================O

Beyond Shadowgate is the sequel to the 1987 adventure game Shadowgate made by
ICOM Simulations, Inc. and Turbo Technologies, Inc. released in 1993.  It is a
graphical point and click text adventure game.  Beyond Shadowgate also allows
the player icons for examining, talking, and taking/using which wasn't present
in the first title.  New to this game is that the adventure is viewed from a
third person platform perspective; interesting array of characters, some with
mythological backgrounds; voice acting; the protagonist can use his fists to
fight; and beautifully drawn landscapes.  Unfortunately I felt the music isn't
up to par with the NES version of Shadowgate.  Some of the tracks in Beyond
Shadowgate aren't as memorable, though the ambiance does suit the atmosphere,
but can be repetitive at times.

In Beyond Shadowgate, you take on the role of the young Prince Erik.  While
studying abroad, Erik was called back with news of his father's, King Aronde,
assassination.  Erik was then framed for his father's murder and was thrown in
jail by the King's Advisor, Belezaar, who also kidnaps his sister, Elizabeth.
Can Erik avenge his father and save his sister as well?  Thus starts the
second tale in the Shadowgate series.

There are unmarked spoilers in this document.  I written this in a way to
allow the player to experience the most fulfillment out of this game without
skipping any cutscenes or events.  My walkthrough will not tell you when to
save your progress, therefore I recommend to save whenever you enter a new
room.  I hope you enjoy playing this game as much as I did!

O============================================================================O

Welcome to the main screen of Beyond Shadowgate, the man you see before you is
Prince Erik.  And those green reptile-like hands in the foreground?  We'll see
later on in this game.  Let's press the Run button to start a new game.

The prologue of the game describes the outcome of Shadowgate.  It states the
protagonist, Lord Jair, successfully was able to save the world by using the
Staff of Ages to break the control the Warlock Lord had over his summoned
beast known as the Behemoth.  The Behemoth took the Warlock Lord with him, and
they both were banished to the Netherworld.  Lord Jair then was able to return
back to the royal city of Stormhaven in the country of Kal Torlin, where he
later took the King's daughter's hand in marriage.  Thus King Jair became the
first in the "Line of Kings", a dynasty whose job was to protect Shadowgate
from falling into the wrong hands.

Now we are introduced to Prince Erik.  His father, King Aronde, ruled over the
land with his two children, Erik and Elizabeth.  Erik has also traveled abroad
preparing himself to become the next in the "Line of Kings", Erik is now 18
years old and he had receive word that his father was murdered.  Erik returns
home as per request by Belezaar, the Royal Advisor, to assume his place on the
throne, but he came home only to be arrested and charged for the assassination
of his father.  Prince Erik was then thrown into a dungeon cell where he will
await his execution.  Then Elizabeth, his sister, briefly visits her brother
where she secretly stuff a Match into Erik's pocket.

Thus starts the second story...

O============================================================================O
| [05] CHAPTER I:  ESCAPE FROM THE DUNGEONS                                  |
O============================================================================O

The game starts off with Erik locked up in his dungeon cell...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > ERIK'S DUNGEON CELL                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The cell door is locked and there is a bed of straws in the corner.  Prince
Erik only has a Match on him that was given to him by Elizabeth.  Your only
way out of here is to cause a distraction.  Press the Select button to bring
up your command menu, and press Select two more times to change the cursor
into a "Hand".  Then press the II button to bring up your inventory and select
the Match.  Your cursor would now change into a Match, move the cursor over to
the bed of straws and press the I Button to use the Match on it.  You should
hear an accomplishment jingle if done correctly.

Erik would light the Match and set the bed of straws on fire, immediately
bringing the attention of one guard.  The guard would come in with a bucket
full of water in his hand which he'll use to put out the fire.  Now you have
to be quick because afterward, the guard will now focus his attention on you
and will try to knock Erik out with the bucket.  Therefore position yourself
and get ready to press the I button to punch the guard.  

It only takes him one hit to render you unconscious which leads you to the
first death scene of the game, the beheading of Erik.  If this happens, you
restart back at the beginning at the dungeon cell.

However it only takes one punch from Erik to kill him, and he will drop his
Bucket and a Set of Keys.  Go ahead and pick them up.  Then go to your
inventory menu, select the Set of Keys and use them on the cell door.  As
suspected, it unlocks the door!  Now go through the door and you're free!

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON HALL 1                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

A cutscene happens where two guards are patrolling the hallway, but then a
sphere of red light appears.  It zaps the two guards dead and the light lands
on the ground, which an apparition of the late King Aronde appears before the
Prince.  He tells his son would soon face a far greater threat within the
walls of Shadowgate.  He then vanishes along with the two dead guards.

Now grab the torch and... oops, just kidding!!  You don't have to obsessively
collect torches in Beyond Shadowgate, unlike the first game where it was
mandatory or you'll face the Grim Reaper.  Now that we know our journey is
completely torch-free, let's head over to the left.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON HALL 2                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now we're basically in a dead end with two doors.  Listening through the bars
on the left cell door, it seems pretty quiet.  But the right cell door has
someone screaming on the other end.  We're going to go left first, so go into
your inventory and use the Set of Keys on the left cell door.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > GUARD ROOM                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Upon entering, a guard immediately charges toward you with sword in hand.  It
will take him three stabs to kill you, also he will laugh after each
successful stab.  This gives you a short window of opportunity to recover and
punch him before stabbity death.  If the guard kills Erik, you would meet the
Grim Reaper and it will be a sad thing for your adventures to end here.  It
takes six swift blows to bring him down.  Make sure to hold down the I button
to do an rapid punch and if you time it correctly, you can easily dish out
three swift punches to fell the guard.

Once the guard is down, pick up the Pepper shaker on top of the table.  No,
we're not going to garnish a dish -- this would be useful later.  We're done
here, let's leave the guard room.  This time we're going to enter the right
cell door, make sure to use the Set of Keys on the door before entering.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > TORTURE ROOM                                          |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a prisoner here who is not only being whipped to death by a torturer,
but he is sitting on a torture chair filled with fire!  There is no hope for
this dying man, but we're going to save him!  As you pass the stairs, the
torturer will now focus his attention on whipping you good.  It takes him five
lashes before Erik goes unconscious and ends up in a public beheading, but it
takes eight punches to kill the torturer.  If by any chance you have to
retreat, the prisoner will end up dead and you will lose out on a password.

Once you defeat the torturer, talk to the prisoner and in his dying breath, he
mutters out the password "rosebud".  [Probably a fan of Citizen Kane?]  We
will be using this later to get ourselves some advice from a bartender.  Now
we can leave the torture room.  Also note that regardless whether you kill the
torturer or not, there is no way to save the prisoner from his fate.  At least
we were able to avenge him by killing the torturer!  Let's leave this room and
go back to the dungeon hall 1.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON HALL 1                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is an unlocked cell to the right of your dungeon cell, you can enter
inside if you want.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > CORPSE'S DUNGEON CELL                                 |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is nothing of interest, except for a rotting corpse teeming with flies.
Let's exit out of this dungeon cell.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON HALL 1                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Before you proceed, you may have notice there is a hole in the cell wall.
Unless you want to get slimed, I suggest you avoid it and go forward to the
next hall.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON CORRIDOR 1                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

This is a real test of your battle skills.  There are two guards here with
swords drawn and King Aronde isn't here to save you!  It takes the guards five
stabs to kill you and, like the guard in the guard room, they will laugh after
each stab.  On the plus side, the guards attack one at a time, so focus your
attention on the guard in front before facing the rear guard.

Remember you can only take four stabs before death, so make sure you take them
both out quick.  It will take each five swift punches to bring them both down,
remember your rapid punch!  One way to conserve your health is to stay at the
left-most exit, then kill the first guard and retreat in order to reset your
health.  Return back and the other guard will be back at his initial position
to attack again, but this time you'll be at full health.

Once you defeat both guards, there are two cell doors.  The cell door to the
right is unlocked and the cell door to the left is locked from the inside.
Let's enter the first cell door we see.  The other cell door is inaccessible
and there is no way to get inside.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > SKELETON'S DUNGEON CELL                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You immediately take notice of the hanging half-eaten skeleton in the middle
of the cell.  Just make sure you don't fall down into the pit because awaiting
you below is a man-eating, giant mutant fungus!  Use the lever which releases
the latch on the skeleton and down it goes into the pit.

While you can drop down into the pit that leads to a shortcut out of the
dungeons, since the giant mutant fungus below would be too busy munching on
the skeleton to pay you any mind.  There are some consequences for leaving
the dungeons quickly as explained in the pit section below.  

We still want to explore the dungeons some more, so let's leave and proceed to
dungeon corridor 1.  But if you are in a rush, proceed to the pit.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > PIT                                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

If you released the skeleton, you can safely drop down here.  The giant mutant
fungus will be seen munching on the skeletal remains.  But if you haven't done
that, enjoy watching your death!

There is nothing of interest in the pit, just exit out of here by using the
"Hand" icon on the tube in the wall.  You will then proceed to the
self-contained cave.  Once you use this shortcut, you cannot go back to the
dungeons whatsoever.  Unless you had previously opened the trapdoor allowing
you access to the ladder leading from the caves back into the dungeons.

If you went through the shortcut, here are the consequences you will face:

1.) You will lose out on getting a Bag.  This item is not necessary for
    completion, but it allows you access to the elevators.  But they will
    already be available to you, making the Bag unnecessary.
2.) If you didn't picked up the Bucket earlier in your cell, you just screw
    yourself.  You're now stuck in the caves forever because the Bucket is
    necessary for you to exit, thus forcing you to reset the game.
3.) If you didn't picked up the Pepper earlier, you cannot kill the Mulnear
    here and you will miss out on a Saphire.
4.) If you forgot to free the young girl earlier, you are forced to kill the
    two sentries by yourself at the Druidwood later in the game.
5.) And if you didn't picked up the Paddleball dropped by the old man, you will
    miss out on one of the Good Endings and one method of payment for the Troll
    you'll meet later on.

I highly suggest we skip this shortcut, since there are too many cons than
pros going for it.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON CORRIDOR 1                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Continue to the right and go down the stairs.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON GATEWAY                                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is nothing of interest, just head down the stairs and go left.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON HALL 3                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There are two locked cell doors here.  You can hear struggling coming from the
door to the right, and you can hear thumping noises coming from the door to
the left.  Use the Set of Keys on the right cell door and enter.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > YOUNG GIRL'S DUNGEON CELL                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

In this cell, you see a beautiful young girl tied up.  Doesn't this situation
seem strangely kind of familiar?  There was one scene that comes to mind in
the original Shadowgate where Jair found a beautiful woman chained to the
floor.  Upon releasing her from her shackles, she transforms herself into a
werewolf... and rips his throat out.

Thus do we really want to save this young girl before us and meet a similar
fate?  Of course we do!  Pull the lever to free the young girl.  Obviously,
she transforms into a werewolf and makes a mad dash out of her cell on all
fours.  It seems you are safe... for now.  Don't worry, this werewolf will
repay your kindness later.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON HALL 3                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now this time we're going to enter the left cell where the thumping sound is
heard from.  Use the Set of Keys on the left cell door and enter.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > OLD MAN'S DUNGEON CELL                                |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Prince Erik comes in and tells the old man inside he is free to go which he
happily does.  He leaves behind the Paddleball he was playing with, which
explains the the thumping sound we heard earlier.  Pick up the Paddleball and
let's leave this cell.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON HALL 3                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go over to the left to enter yet another hallway.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON HALL 4                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The first cell door you see is unlocked and it's empty.  So we'll go to the
far left to a dead end.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > EMPTY DUNGEON CELL                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is nothing of interest in this cell, let's leave.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DUNGEONS > DUNGEON HALL 5                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

This dead end houses a chained Minotaur, standing on top of a trapdoor, who is
thirsty for blood.  [Personally, the Minotaur looks more like a rabid reindeer
on steroids.]  To proceed down the trapdoor, you have to get through the beast
first.  It takes the Minotaur about eight slashes with his claws to kill Erik,
so give him six swift punches to kill him.

Once the Minotaur is defeated, use the "Hand" icon on the trapdoor.  Erik would
struggle a bit with the handle and when you regain control, don't move.  If
Erik happens to stand over the trapdoor, he will fall to his death.

The trapdoor opens, revealing a ladder underneath where you can use to climb
underground.  You can either use the "Hand" icon on the ladder or manually move
Erik down the ladder to climb down.  Sweet freedom at last?

O============================================================================O
| [06] CHAPTER II:  THEY HUNGER IN THE CAVES                                 |
O============================================================================O

Prince Erik climbs down the ladder, leading him deep down into the caverns...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > CAVERN CORRIDOR 1                                      |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You can read the sign to learn a bit of history about the heating systems, but
our main concern is the Bag on the ground.  Pick it up and upon examination,
we note that it's thin and stretchy.  This could be useful later.

Let's go to the far left to head deeper into the caverns.  Watch as a cave
creature flies by you, a nice touch to the atmosphere.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > CAVERN LEDGE                                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Just keep going left, but before you move onto the next screen.  There is a
Piece of Quartz lying on the ground in the middle, blending well into its
surroundings.  Be sure to pick it up and continue forward.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > CAVERN CORRIDOR 2                                      |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Prepare yourself because halfway through here, a Cave Dweller will emerge to
the right and gives anklebiter a whole new meaning.  Unless you want instant
death, you just have to punch the Cave Dweller once to kill it.  Crouching
isn't necessary, just do a rapid punch and you'll kill it once it gets near.

Once the Cave Dweller is dead, continue to walk left and enter the small cave.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > SMALL CAVE                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

At the end of the cavern corridor is a dead end where there is a large pipe
with hot steam coming out of it.  We can make a makeshift hot air balloon by
using the Bag over the large pipe.  The steam will immediately fill up the Bag
as we expecte and up, up, up and away Erik goes toward the upper chamber of
the caves!

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > UPPER CHAMBER OF THE CAVES 1                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Upon landing, the Bag pops.  Don't worry, we can always access the lower
chamber by using the wooden elevator to the left.  But at the pace we're
going, it is unnecessary because we done everything we need to do in the
dungeons if you have followed this walkthrough all the way.

Let's go to the upper right to enter the self-contained cave.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > SELF-CONTAINED CAVE                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Upon arrival, you'll come face-to-face with a giant insect called a Mulnear.
This thing spells out death for Erik because it can kill him in one clean,
thorough slice.  Not to mention your fists are useless against the creature,
but the Mulnear is weak against the Pepper in your possession.  Use the Pepper
on the Mulnear and watch it wither away.

You can also evade the creature by walking carefully across the other side.
However you'll miss out on the Saphire in the middle of the room and you can't
get this gem without killing the Mulnear.

When you do kill the Mulnear, grab the Saphire and proceed to the right.  Also
you may have notice there is a hole here blocked from this end.  If you came
from the pit, you will end up here.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > UNDERGROUND WALKWAY                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Just walk on forward to the right until you see a giant mushroom in your path.
Stop right there because if you walk past the mushroom, it'll suck you up and
spit you out dead, and your fists are useless against the mushroom.  But you
may have notice the pipes above the man-eating fungus and one of it has steam
slightly coming out of it.  Use your "Hand" icon on the pipe and Erik would
use his weight to lower the pipe.  The steam evaporates the mushroom, making
it no longer a threat.  Now we can move on forward to the next screen.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > CAVERN CORRIDOR 3                                      |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Just walk forward and you're welcomed by three bats which fly about.  Examine
them which I find to be one of the cutest descriptions in this game.  Just
continue to the right onto the next screen.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > UPPER CHAMBER OF THE CAVES 2                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a stream of lava blocking your path, Erik can't jump in this game and
crossing it means fiery, molten death.  So what is a man to do?  Notice the
hole where the lava is flowing from?  You can use the Bucket you've picked up
from the guard in your dungeon cell to plug it up.  Please don't ask me how
that works, it's Shadowgate logic!  Once Erik plugs up the hole, you are free
to go.  Continue to the right onto the next screen.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CAVERNS > BRIGHT CAVE                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

As we progress, now a Troll will block the way.  Upon further examination and
talking to the Troll, we learned that its bored and he'll only let you pass if
you pay him up.  Since we don't have any CoppCoins, GoldCoins, or Spears to
use against him.  [If you play Shadowgate, you'll understand.]  We are left
with the choices of either entertaining or paying his fee.

There are three ways to get pass the Troll:  You can relieve him of boredom by
giving him the Paddleball from the old man's dungeon cell.  Or you can pay the
toll with the Saphire we acquired from the self-contained cell.  Or you can
use your fists to knock him down.  Do note that giving the Troll the
Paddleball allows you to miss out on one of the Good Endings, and if you used
the Saphire as payment, you will be short of two Gold Pieces we can use later
to purchase stuff.

I suggest we fight the Troll instead.  Walk toward him and his ears will perk
up, warning Erik that he will use brute force.  It takes the Troll two swings
from his club to kill Erik, but you only need one good punch to bring down the
bored humanoid.  After that, the poor Troll will land on his rump and starts
crying.  Whatever method you use on the Troll, you are now free to pass, and
continue forth to get ourselves out of the caves.

| [07] CHAPTER III:  MAKING MONEY                                            |
O============================================================================O

Hallelujah, we finally see the light...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > LEDGE 1                                                  |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Just keep walking forward and don't worry about the bridge.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > LEDGE 2                                                  |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

As you continue to walk forward, two young Wyverns would swoop down.  Don't
fret, they're just curious, and the last thing you want to do is punch them.
Let them satisfy their curiosity and they'll fly away.  Now head down.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > WYVERN'S NEST                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We came across a Wyvern's nest, you should be safe if you decided to not harm
the two young Wyverns earlier.  If you did kill one or both of them, you'll
later see the shadow of their mother and then death from her hooked tail.  It
is very important you leave the two young Wyverns alone because you want to
grab the blue Serpent Idol lying on the ground.  We are done here, so let's
return back up north.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > LEDGE 2                                                  |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

This time go up toward a path in the hills.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > PATH 1                                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We are going to head right for now toward another path.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > PATH 2                                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep going right because we want to enter the city.  If you want to make a
quick pit stop and visit the trail to the north, you are more than welcomed.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > HILL CLEARING                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The only thing of interest here is a slithering snake, for now.  You can leave
this clearing and follow the path leading to the city.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > WALL STREET 1                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Most of the houses and shops here are closed, so we're going to head north
toward the outskirts of the city.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > CITY OUTSKIRTS                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a musician here named Frank, jamming on his guitar, who mentions
about a lost temple out in the woods.  You can punch Frank if you like, there
are no penalties.  Let's head north from here to the gateway between the city
and the woods.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > GATEWAY                                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Head right and go back down back into the city.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > MAIN STREET 1                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a woman who is keeping watch at the entrance of the gates.  Talk to
her and she warns you about the bandits out on the roads, you'll thank her for
the heads up.  Be sure to not punch her because there is no way to defeat her,
even with the infinite health cheat code on!  She is way too fast and five
slashes from her sword will kill Erik.

The only places that are open are the Temple and the Pet Shop.  Let's go
inside the Temple of the Dawn to the left of the gates.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > TEMPLE OF THE DAWN                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Margaretta, the Priestess of this Temple, will hand over the Pendant of the
Elements when you talk to her.  This Pendant of the Elements holds a key to
Castle Shadowgate and may later save your life.  You can punch her afterward
if you like with no penalties.

However, if you forgot to speak with Margaretta before punching her, then you
miss out on the Pendant of the Elements.  Then you are unable to obtain the
Seashell from Lakmir's Hut needed to head deeper into Castle Shadowgate, and
would have to resort with the Piranha instead.  But my walkthrough allows you
to get both items if you follow it thoroughly.

We are finish with the Temple of the Dawn, let's leave.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > MAIN STREET 1                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Continue forward to the right.  We're going to ignore the Pet Shop because we
don't have any Gold Pieces on us.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > MAIN STREET 2                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You'll immediately hear the incoherent babbling of a speaker on stage who,
amongst his ramblings, will give some foreshadowing hints of what is to come
for Erik.  Most importantly are "Belezaar", "Castle", and "Snakemen".  If you
want to be a bit sadistic, you can punch the audience member with no penalty
and the speaker will quiet for good which may be a good thing.

You can make a pit stop at Castle Gwynenthell, but there is nothing of
importance there.  Let's continue to the right to reach First Avenue.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > CASTLE GWYNENTHELL                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a demon here guarding Castle Gwynenthell, the birthplace of Prince
Erik.  Since you cannot pass or bribe the demon, the only purpose it serves is
an instant death if Erik decides to punch the demon.  Best to just leave.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > MAIN STREET 2                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go southeast to venture onto First Avenue.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > FIRST AVENUE 2                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a young urchin here with her Pack Beast, you can talk to her and she
will run off to get some candy.  There's no way for you to ride the Pack
Beast, so continue to walk forward to the left.

There is a Shop of the Mystic to the right of the coughing man in the small
alley.  It isn't necessary to speak with the Mystic because we don't have any
Gold Pieces on us, but you can make a pit stop to see what she has to say so
far.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > SHOP OF THE MYSTIC                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The Mystic here can give Erik a total of three clues for an offering of one
Gold Piece each.  Her first clue is that Erik must return the Serpent Idol to
its origin in a cold, damp place.  Her second clue is that Erik will later
have to bring together the pieces of the Staff of Ages.  And her third and
final clue is that Erik will have many children and grow old.

Even if you returned the Serpent Idol and pay her, she will still tell Erik
the first clue.  But now we know what the Mystic has to say, we can save
ourselves our money for the shops in the city.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > FIRST AVENUE 2                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Continue left and let's talk to the coughing man.  He tells us if we know the
secret password from the dungeons, we should tell it to the bartender.  This
must be the password we heard from the prisoner in the dungeons!  We'll check
it out later.  Right now we're going inside Charlie's House of Gems to the
left of the coughing man.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > CHARLIE'S HOUSE OF GEMS                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Charlie will exchange two Gold Pieces for every Saphire you give him, and
there are a total of two Saphires in this game.  We found one of them so far,
therefore give him the Saphire from the self-contained cave for two Gold
Pieces.  Let's leave this place and continue left at First Avenue to move onto
the next screen.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > FIRST AVENUE 1                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

While this place seems pretty straightforward, there is an alley behind the
retirement home.  Just go to the right-most side of the building and you'll
reach the alley.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > ALLEY                                                     |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You will immediately hear cries for help.  Using the "Hand" icon, touch the
opened window to the left and Erik will climb inside the house.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > OLD LADY'S BEDROOM                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is an old lady inside, she's fallen and can't get up.  Use the "Hand"
icon on the old lady and Erik will prop her back up onto the bed.  She is
grateful and rewards Erik with one Gold Piece.

You are done here for now.  But if you want to see something great, use the
"Hand" icon on the book.  [Make sure you save before doing this!]

Once you have done everything, leave her bedroom via from the same window you
came in from.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > ALLEY                                                     |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We're done here, let's leave the alley by going to the left.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > FIRST AVENUE 1                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now we're going to go left to reach Wall Street.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > WALL STREET 2                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We end up between the Curio Shoppe and Tavern, both which are open.  Let's go
to the far right and talk to the man there who seems deep in thought.  He
tells Erik that strange stuff has been happening lately and Belezaar also
kidnapped Elizabeth just this afternoon.  The bastard!  If you feel like
taking your aggression out on the man, you can do so without penalty.  Now
we'll go south of the man to the docks.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > DOCK                                                      |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

A pelican will start to fly off, leaving behind a Feather.  Pick it up and
continue forward to the right.  You will hear some snoring coming from a
little Box Turtle at the edge of the dock.  Go ahead and pick it up as well.

We're done with the dock for now, let's exit here and go inside the Tavern.
The Tavern is marked by a sign with grapes and a wine glass.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > TAVERN                                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There are two patrons and a bartender in this Tavern.  While the first patron
might look somewhat familiar, he is not the old man from the dungeons.  [Maybe
his twin brother?]  Anyways, talk to him and he'll challenge you to a turtle
race.  Since we already found ourselves a Box Turtle from the dock and more
than enough money, let's give the tavern patron the Box Turtle and Erik will
pay for his half of the winnings.  Now the turtle race shall commence!  No
matter what, your turtle will always win and in a surprisingly manner too!
Upon sweet defeat, the tavern patron hands over two Gold Pieces to Erik.

The other tavern patron is a bit drunk, so we'll talk to the bartender.  As
the coughing man at First Avenue said, once you say the secret password
"rosebud", the bartender tells Erik they are actually members of the Kal
Torlin Underground.  They know that Erik didn't murdered his father, also
Belezaar has a lot of henchmen wandering about asking about Shadowgate.  This
doesn't bode well at all.  If you haven't spoken with the prisoner, the
bartender will just mention how she is all out of supplies.

We're finish here, let's leave.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > WALL STREET 2                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Let's enter Leo's Curio Shoppe which is to the left of the Tavern.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > LEO'S CURIO SHOPPE                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You'll immediately have a conversation with the Curio Shoppe's owner, Leo.  He
wants you to take a Magic Box to the Sage in the woods and he'll offer to pay
you for your service.  Erik agrees and takes the Magic Box with him.

Leo also offers his curiosities for sale, each for one Gold Piece.  They are a
Squeaky Toy Mouse, a Special Comb, and a Ball of Magic Yarn.  Unfortunately,
the large mysterious idol isn't for sale.  We have four Gold Coins on us, go
ahead and purchase all three items.  Go into your inventory, use the "Hand"
icon on a Gold Piece to change the cursor into a Gold Piece.  Then use the
Gold Piece over each item to purchase them.

The next time we'll come back to Leo's Curio Shoppe is after delivering the
Magic Box to the Sage.  Leave this place and head over to the left.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > WALL STREET 1                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Just keep going to the left, we're going to leave the city.

O============================================================================O
| [08] CHAPTER IV:  A VILLAGE ON FIRE                                        |
O============================================================================O

Now it's time for Erik to finally start playing hero...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > PATH 2                                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Just keep going left back toward the first path of the hills.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > PATH 1                                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Immediately out of nowhere, a lion dashes toward you and starts pouncing.  It
takes the lion five pounces before Erik keels over, and you have two options
to do here.  You can punch the lion, to do this you must crouch down and start
rapidly punching.  It only takes one punch to kill the lion.  The other way is
to use the Magic Yarn on the lion to draw its attention, leaving you alone.  I
suggest to use the Magic Yarn, since we already have it in our inventory.
Once the lion is gone, head to the far left.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > CHASM                                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a fork here at the chasm, we're going to head north for a bit.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > STONE BRIDGE                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a Crank on the ground near the entrance next to the southern rocks.
Pick it up and go right to head back to the chasm.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > CHASM                                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now let's head south toward the cliff.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > CLIFF                                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Nothing to do here except go right.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > LEDGE 3                                                  |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

If you walk forward for a bit, you notice that there is a bridge that stops
midway, disconnecting you from accessing the other ledge.  When you walk back
toward the entrance of this screen.  You would notice that there is a hole in
the wall.  Use the Crank on it to draw out the bridge.  Then cross the bridge
and there is a cave here, enter it.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > HERMIT'S CAVE                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The cave is home to a sleeping hermit.  Upon talking to him, the hermit tells
you that his Crank was stolen and he would trade something for it.  Give him
the Crank and in exchange, he will give you the Foreign Language Phrase Book
which comes in handy if you met anyone who speaks in a foreign tongue.  We're
done here for now, you can punch him afterward if you like with no penalties.
Unless if you forgotten to give him the Crank, then you missed out on the
Foreign Language Phrase Book.  This really doesn't affect the game at all,
save for Prince Erik missing out on a clue on where he should use the Musical
Pipes he'll obtain later.

Let's leave this cave and head on back over to the stone bridge.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Continue to the left and cross the long bridge.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You can see smoke and fire coming from the buildings in the distant village.
Enter the village and let's see if we can save ourselves some villagers!

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VILLAGE > VILLAGE 1                                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You see a little girl run by you and another man was running for his life, but
an arrow was shot and he dies before you.  When you walk toward the burning
house, a creature who looks like a reject out of Aliens, called a Marauder,
appears.  He is equipped with a pump-action bagpipe... err, bow in hand.  It
is possible to defeat this Marauder, but patience is required.  The method you
have to kill him is to duck his arrows, then move forward and try to get a
punch in as he's trying to back away from you.  The easiest way is to corner
him to one side of the screen, then the Marauder will try to go around you to
the opposite side.  That is your opportunity to get at least two or three
punches in, then repeat on the other side of the screen.  It takes a total of
four punches to bring down the Marauder.  Once you kill the Marauder, enter
the burning house.

If you don't feel like fighting the Marauder, you can retreat inside of the
burning house and fight him once you've finish your business there.  Or you
can also avoid him altogether and just proceed to the left to the next screen.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VILLAGE > BURNING ROOM                                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a young child crying here, he is trapped by the wall of fires around
him.  It is your duty to save him, to do this you would have to use the "Hand"
icon on the brown rug underneath your feet.  Or if you want to be sadistic,
just wait a couple of minutes and the fire will engulf the child completely.
There is no penalty for saving the child, just the satisfaction of being the
hero like you should always be.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VILLAGE > VILLAGE 1                                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

If you want to finish killing the Marauder, go ahead.  When you have killed
the Marauder or instead retreat, go to the left onto the next screen.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VILLAGE > VILLAGE 2                                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You see another Marauder running away, holding a family with him hostage.
Let's chase after him to the other side of the screen.

If you did not kill the first Marauder, he will appear in this screen to
finish his job of eliminating you.  You can then now fight the Marauder here,
or continue to run away to the next screen.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VILLAGE > VILLAGE STREET 1                                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We see a critically injured knight in the background with his arm is severed.
This isn't the time to mourn, the Marauder who ran off with the family is now
here to take you out with a flame-thrower in hand.   This Marauder is a lot
easier to take down than his partner, the best strategy against him is to
start walking to the very bottom of the screen.  Then corner him to the left
side of the screen while ducking his fire blasts.  He will start trying to
walk forward and just hold down the punch button, he will deliberately walk
right into your fists and he's dead after four punches.  Or, like his partner,
you can also avoid him altogether.  When you have killed him or avoided him,
go onto the next screen to the left.

You can also use your "Hand" icon on the knight's severed arm and it will then
float away to the right.  There is really no explanation for that.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VILLAGE > VILLAGE STREET 2                                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

If you continue forth, you will see the family from before tied up and left on
the streets with the daughter by herself, and mother and son together.  Use
your "Hand" icon on daughter or the mother and son, and Erik will free all of
them.  The mother will repay Erik's kindness with a peck on the cheek.  Go
you!  Now that you're done here, proceed north.

If you escaped from the first or second Marauder, they will not appear in this
screen.  So you have the time to save the family if you wish.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VILLAGE > COURTYARD                                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Upon reaching this area, the Mayor will come out and thank you for saving his
village from the Marauders.  But the Mayor speaks in a foreign language Erik
is unfamiliar with, but you have the Foreign Language Phrase Book in hand!
You are able to decipher the foreign language and understand that the Musical
Pipes the Mayor hands over are to be used at the Druidwood.  Erik thanks him,
and you can exit where the Mayor left from.

But if you have not defeated the first or second Marauder, they will now
appear in this screen for a final showdown.  Even though it's much easier
battling them where you've first met, fighting these two together are not
impossible.  It just requires precise timing and punching.  Once both are
defeated, the Mayor will come out of hiding.

If you have forgotten to get the Foreign Language Phrase Book from the Hermit,
the Mayor will continue to speak in his foreign tongue as he hands over the
Musical Pipes to a confused Erik.  Now Erik will have to do trial and error to
figure out what secrets these pipes contain.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VILLAGE > VILLAGE 2                                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You end up in Village 2 and the fires are died down, the village is now safe.
There is nothing left to do in this village.  Now let's exit by continuing
from the right.  There is also an alleyway that connects you from Village 2 to
Village 1, but it would only cut your traveling time by seconds.

Upon leaving, King Aronde pays another visit to Prince Erik.  He warns him
that Belezaar has taken Elizabeth out of the city and they are heading toward
a deep forest.  Most likely those woods outside of the city!  Once King Aronde
finishes, leave this village.

Let's go left from here toward the Druidwood, we're going to call the Fairies
as the Mayor stated.  

O============================================================================O

It's time to go fairy hunting...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DRUIDWOOD > DRUIDWOOD                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There are two blue mushroom sentries guarding these woods.  If you happen to
save the young girl from the dungeons, she will arrive on scene and save your
skin.  But if you haven't saved the young girl, you will have to defeat them.
They both attack by puffing a cloud of poisonous pink smoke that will kill
Erik by covering him with fungi, but they can be killed within three punches.
It's easier to save the young girl to save you from all this hassle.

Once done, you are able to progress deeper into the Druidwood.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DRUIDWOOD > DRUIDWOOD TRAIL 1                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Nothing here except seeing four colorful butterflies fly pass you, keep going
left to head further into the Druidwood.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DRUIDWOOD > DRUIDWOOD TRAIL 2                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep going left.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DRUIDWOOD > DRUIDWOOD TRAIL 3                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go southeast down this trail.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DRUIDWOOD > DRUIDWOOD TRAIL 4                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep going right, we're almost there!!

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DRUIDWOOD > GATEWAY                                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We have arrived at the gateway which strangely resembles Stonehenge.  It is
quiet here, but maybe the sound of your Musical Pipes would bring life to this
place.  Once music has filled the air, the King of the Fairies, Iphicles, will
greet you.  The Fairy King will tells Erik that he has been watching over him.
When Erik tells him that he seeks Belezaar, King Iphicles makes a deal.  He
will tell Erik where Belezaar went as long as he rescues his daughter,
Princess Alessandra, who was kidnapped by a Goblin Shaman.  Erik agrees.
Unless you like to see the Grim Reaper, you can try to punch King Iphicles,
but you'll end up getting fried by a magic spell.

Then it's time to leave this area, so make the long trek back toward the city.
Basically follow the Druidwood trail back to the village clearing.  Keep going
right pass the stone bridge and go right at the fork.  Then keep going right
until you reach the stream with two gargoyles, the screen after the lion and
the screen before the city.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > PATH 2                                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

At this path, go north at the midway point to enter the hill clearing.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HILLS > HILL CLEARING                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

When we entered here previously, it was empty.  Now it's being used as a
ceremonial sacrifice, Princess Alessandra is tied up here with the Goblin
Shaman upset that Erik interrupted his rites.  Unlike most battles you have
fought before, you cannot leave this area to reset your health.  Also the
Goblin Shaman hops around the screen and uses his sickle, five slices from
this will bring Erik down.  Get ready to punch the Goblin Shaman three times
to kill him.  The easiest way to fight him is to face up and get the Goblin
Shaman stuck to a point where he will hop from the wall, then toward you, and
back again.  Then start holding down the punch button and the Goblin Shaman
will eventually die.

When you do kill the Goblin Shaman, Erik will automatically untie the Princess
and she will fly away with him toward the gateway at Druidwood.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | DRUIDWOOD > GATEWAY                                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The reunion between father and daughter is heartwarming, and King Iphicles
thanks Erik for saving Alessandra.  He will then teleport Erik to the next
location of his quest so that he can be one step closer to saving Elizabeth.
If you have followed this walkthrough, you will end up at the small patch of
woods near Gatekeeper Mountain.  If not, you will end up instead in front of
Leo's Curio Shoppe.

We are going to tred slowly back to the city...

     | GATEKEEPER MOUNTAIN > SMALL PATCH OF WOODS                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go north to reach the Dwarven mines.

     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > DWARVEN MINES 2                              |

Keep going left to go to the entrance of the Dwarven mines.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > DWARVEN MINES 1                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a building here which houses a boiler, but we're not going to go
inside yet.  Instead we're going to pick up the Saphire on the ground which is
blended well with the ground.

Now let's go left toward the woods.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > CAVERN LEDGE                                       |

Head to the left to reach the trail.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 6                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You hear the painful cries of a man which is coming from a Dwarven viking who
is picking at his beard.  Talking to the viking, he complains about the burrs
on his beard and would like to have something to comb them out with.  Well, so
happens we bought a Special Comb from Leo!  Give him the Special Comb and
he'll exchange it for a magical Hammer.  You can punch him afterward if you
like with no penalties.  Unless you have forgotten to give him the Special
Comb, then you will miss out on the Hammer.  Thus meaning that you are unable
to view the Good Ending with the Magic Sword.

We're going to backtrack for a bit, go right to go back to the cavern ledge.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > CAVERN LEDGE                                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Just keep going straight to enter the next area.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > OUTSIDE TEMPLE                                     |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The Temple of Astrid is in the center of this area, go ahead and enter inside.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TEMPLE OF ASTRID                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a stone gargoyle blocking the stairs who will taunt Erik by sticking
out its tongue at you whenever you turn your back against it.  Your fists
don't work on him, but he may react to your magical Hammer.  Use your Hammer
on it and it'll be nothing more than dust in the wind.  Now you are free to
climb up the stairs.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TOWER                                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The place here is cold and damp, this must be the origin of the Serpent Idol
as spoken by the Mystic.  Go use the Serpent Idol we retrieved from the
Wyvern's nest on the Pool of Astrid.  Then a giant hand will emerge from the
waters and presents the Royal Gauntlet to Erik.  The Sage told us that the
Royal Gauntlet must be worn to acquire the Magic Sword.  Now let's exit the
Temple of Astrid and back to the cavern ledge.

Ya gotta love Erik's epic exit out of the Temple of Astrid!

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > CAVERN LEDGE                                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go straight left to go deeper into the North Woods.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 6                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now go left and south here.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 4                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a fork in the trail.  We're going to go right.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 5                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The music is picking up here, so danger must be ahead!  Proceed forward to see
a bandit blocking your path.  Talk to him and he will spare Erik's life if you
hand over a Gold Piece.  Like the Troll, there are two ways to get past the
bandit.  You can spare your life and pay the fee, or you can use your fists to
knock him down.

We need to save up all of the Gold Pieces, and this rhinoceros is just one big
pushover.  Just walk directly below him and he'll start to attack with his
ball-and-chain.  If you walked below him correctly, he cannot harm you at all
because of this blind spot.  Be careful if he does hit you, it only takes two
swings from his ball-and-chain to kill Erik!  Just give him two punches and
the bandit falls down hard.  Whatever method you use on the bandit, you are
now free to pass!  Keep heading right.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > GIANT TREE                                         |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go straight and enter the Sage's abode.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > SAGE'S ABODE                                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The Sage is none other than a giant, talking frog.  When you talk to him, you
learn the Sage is waiting for the Magic Box that Leo told him about.  Give him
the Magic Box, but the Sage gets startled and drops it on the floor.  This is
actually a monster-in-a-box who has its sights on killing the Sage!  [Great
gift by the way, Leo!]  When the Sage and Erik stand back to briefly pause,
soon you are given a few seconds to control Erik and prepare yourself.  Once
you regain control, face down and land one punch to bring down this evil
clown.  The Sage will then hand over a Note to Erik for saving his life.

You can punch the Sage afterward if you like with no penalties.  Unless if you
forgot to save the Sage from the monster-in-the-box, then you missed out on
the Note.  This Note allows Leo to reward Erik with one Gold Piece, but it
isn't necessary to finish the game.

We're done here, go ahead and exit the Sage's abode and go back to the fork in
the trail.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is another fork in the trail.  This time, go southwest to enter a
familiar territory.

to take the Set of Tools outside the blacksmith shop.  Leave.

sister and no one has the courage to go after him.  Let's exit this place.

There is a public well here, go ahead and toss that extra Gold Piece you have
left over from the turtle race into the well.  Then King Aronde will send a
message from beyond the well telling you that Elizabeth is scared and is in
grave danger.  She will have to hang in there, exit this area to the right.

     | CITY > CHARLIE'S HOUSE OF GEMS                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Trade in the second Saphire we've acquired from the Dwarven mines and we are
now two Gold Pieces richer.  We're completely done with Charlie's House of
Gems, exit this place.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > FIRST AVENUE 2                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep going right to venture onto Main Street.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > MAIN STREET 2                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep going left back toward the northern exit of the city.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > MAIN STREET 1                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Enter the building nearest the woman guarding the gateway to the Pet Shop.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > PET SHOP                                                  |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The Pet Shop offers three pets for sale, each for one Gold Piece, and they are
a Mongrel, Piranha, and Canary.  Unfortunately, the barrel of monkey isn't for
sale.  [Nice joke there.]  Since we have three Gold Coins on us, purchase all
of them.  When you buy Max the Mongrel, he will run off, but don't worry about
him for now.  We're completely done with the Pet Shop, let's exit.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > MAIN STREET 1                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We're completely done with the city and there's no need for us to come back.
Make sure that you have the Pendant of the Elements, Feather, Squeak Toy, Set
of Tools, Mongrel, Piranha, and Canary before leaving.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CITY > GATEWAY                                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go north and head back to the North Woods.

O============================================================================O
| [12] CHAPTER VIII:  THE SWORD, THE STAFF, AND THE ELEMENTS                 |
O============================================================================O

Now it's time for us to get the Magic Sword for one of the Good Endings...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 1                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

At the fork in the trail, go right to head toward the swamp.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 2                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The ground here is soft, just head right. 

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 3                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep heading right and your feet will slightly sink into the wet grounds, but
you must keep venturing on.  When you see a red hadrosaur-like creature in the
background, be prepared to have a sinking feeling.  Just when death is staring
at you in the face, Max is here to the rescue!  What a great Mongrel!

Now you are able to proceed to the swamps ahead.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > SWAMP                                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The swamp here is home to the Magic Sword that is lodged deep into the skull
of a dead dragon.  Before you start pulling out the Magic Sword, use the Royal
Gauntlet on yourself first before anything.  Or else you'll literally splat on
the screen, not a pretty sight.  Once you used the Royal Gauntlet on yourself,
go ahead and pull out the Magic Sword!  We're completely done with the North
Woods.  Go left to exit out of the swamp.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 3                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

As you continue to the left, you start to sink again.  Don't worry, Max is
here once more to the rescue.  He is definitely man's best friend!  Now it's
time to head back to the Dwarven mines.  Keep going left until you reach the
first fork in the trail.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 1                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

At this fork in the trail, go north.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 4                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Another fork in the trail, go north.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > TRAIL 6                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep going left to the next screen.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | NORTH WOODS > CAVERN LEDGE                                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now go left until you reach the fork in the trail, then go north there to go
back to the Dwarven mines.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > DWARVEN MINES 1                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go inside the building near where you got the Saphire.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > ENGINE ROOM                                  |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

In the right-most corner of this engine room, there is a pile of coals.  Go
ahead and pocket a Coal for use in the future.  Then use the Set of Tools on
the engine.  Erik will pull out a mysterious Orb from the machine and pocket
it.  We're done here in this engine room, go ahead and exit.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > DWARVEN MINES 1                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now go up the trail to the left of the building toward a remote region.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > SMALL LEDGE                                  |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep going right up the Highland Plateau.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > NARROW LEDGE 1                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a fork in the ledge, go left here.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > NARROW LEDGE 2                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep going left and enter the cave up ahead.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > GIANT SLUG BURROW 1                          |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We're now in a giant slug burrow, you know what that means right?  Let's head
left to go deeper into the burrow.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > GIANT SLUG BURROW 2                          |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We finally meet the giant slugs that inhabit this burrow, two of them in fact!
It takes five drills from their horns to bring Erik down, but you got your
fists!  Crouch down and punch them about four to five to kill them both.  If
you feel that you need to reset your health by going to the previous screen,
do so that you don't get a one way ticket to the Grim Reaper!

Once both are dead, there are tube-nests here at the end.  Pick up the Shiny
Metal on the ground, then let's exit back to the fork at the Highland Plateau.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > NARROW LEDGE 1                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go north at the fork here.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > LEDGE                                        |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go north to enter the chilling plateau.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > PLATEAU 1                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Another fork in the plateau, this time go left.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > PLATEAU 2                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a hidden cave here, just keep going left until you are about to reach
the edge of the plateau.  Then go into the entrance next to the pile of rocks.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > CRYPT OF AGES                                |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We're now inside the aptly named Crypt of Ages, most likely the home of the
Staff of Ages mentioned by the Mystic.  Get ready to duck quick because you
will get a face full of skull bullets!  You gotta move forward fast and punch
the bone creature up ahead once to kill it.  You can do this by continuously
ducking and moving forward as if you're fighting a Marauder.  Or you can just
keep moving forward and take all of the hits, five skull bullets is all it
takes to kill Erik.  But if you're fast enough, you can take four of them
before finally reaching the bone creature.

When you kill it, go ahead and enter the Door to the Crypts.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > SOLITARY ROOM                                |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

This is the place where you can obtain the Staff of Ages, but first you have
to assemble it as what the Mystic foretell.  Use the Shiny Metal and Orb on
the left dead knight to recreate the Staff of Ages.  Assembling the Staff of
Ages on the right dead knight leads to a fried, crispy death.  We're done
here, let's exit and go back to the fork in the plateau.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > LAKMIR'S HUT                                 |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is some Parchment paper on the ground, go ahead and pick it up.  But
before you enter Lakmir's place, it's very important that you use the Pendant
of the Elements on yourself.  You'll see why when you enter.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > HUT INTERIOR                                 |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The whole place is frozen solid, not to mention Lakmir himself.  There is an
evil wraith here who is guarding the hut to ensure no one touches Lakmir.  If
you had worn the Pendant of the Elements outside of Lakmir's hut, you are free
to move around.  If you haven't, the wraith will freeze Erik like what he had
done to the old wizard.

Walk forward and you should see a Magnifying Glass sitting on top of the lower
shelf next to Lakmir.  Pick it up and you will notice that there is a sunlight
emitting out of the window here, we're going to melt Lakmir and vanquish the
wraith!  Use the Parchment on the floor where the sunlight is hitting, and
Erik will place the Parchment down.  Then use the Magnifying Glass on the beam
of sunlight and Erik will set the Parchment ablaze.

Now the room is warm again and Lakmir is thawed!  Talk to the old wizard and he
tells Erik that the Pendant of the Elements is a mirror image of a floor in
Castle Shadowgate.  Also you have to find the pieces of the Staff of Ages,
which we have already done earlier.  And unless you have a death wish, you can
try to punch Lakmir, but he'll only fry Erik with a magic spell.

Before leaving this area, pick up the Seashell on the lower shelf.  This will
be useful in that floor Lakmir mentioned.  We are completely done with the
Highland Plateau, now leave Lakmir's hut.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > LAKMIR'S HUT                                 |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now keep going south until you have reached the Dwarven mines again.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > DWARVEN MINES 1                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now go all the way to the right.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HIGHLAND PLATEAUS > DWARVEN MINES 2                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep going right and our next destination is Gatekeeper Mountain.

O============================================================================O
| [13] CHAPTER IX:  ONWARD TO CASTLE SHADOWGATE                              |
O============================================================================O

We are getting closer to our final destination...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | GATEKEEPER MOUNTAIN > SMALL PATCH OF WOODS                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

This was one of the areas where King Iphicles teleported us to.  We're going
to go right to the Gatekeeper Mountain.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | GATEKEEPER MOUNTAIN > PEACEFUL WOOD                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Just go ahead and climb up the stairs to proceed into Gatekeeper Mountain.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | GATEKEEPER MOUNTAIN > VERTICAL MOUNTAIN                          |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep climbing up, we're almost there!

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | GATEKEEPER MOUNTAIN > CLIFFS                                     |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

From here on out, I will be referring to the ground floors as platforms that
are separated by stairs.  Thus the ground you're standing on now is platform
one, and ahead are platforms two and three.  This is important because there
are no signs to warn us, "CAUTION:  FALLING BOULDERS!"  These falling boulders
mean instant death for Erik.  Thankfully, these boulders will only fall down
once.  So if you do avoid one, they will never come back, even if you go to
another screen.  The best way to not get crushed by them is to step away from
their shadows.  There will be a falling boulder on platform two.  So climb up
the first set of stairs, and keep going north to miss the boulder.

There won't be another falling boulder here, so you are free to go ahead to
the third platform to face the lizard-like creature known as the Guardian of
the Mountain.  It only takes the Guardian of the Mountain two swings from his
flail to bring Erik down.  Get ready to rapidly punch against it because you
need ten punches to kill it!  Once the Guardian of the Mountain is killed,
proceed onto the next screen to the right.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | GATEKEEPER MOUNTAIN > LEDGE                                      |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

This area requires great patience because the creature here, the undead harpy,
otherwise known as a one way trip to the Grim Reaper.  She will only have to
strike once with her talons to behead Erik and she's way too high up for him
to punch her.  Much like your strategy with the Marauders and the bone
creature, you mainly have to walk and duck, except with instant death hanging
above your head.  Just keep going right and proceed up the stairs.  Make sure
that you keep ducking because even though you can't see the undead harpy, she
can still kill you.  You have a good idea of when she'll swoop down if you
calculated the timing of her movements right.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | GATEKEEPER MOUNTAIN > SUMMIT                                     |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Here comes some more boulders ready to squash you!  Unlike the first boulder
we come across, these will continuously fall down when you stand on the area
where they fall!  You're currently on the first platform, so get ready to walk
either up or right because the first boulder will fall down here.

The second boulder will fall in-between the stairs leading up to the second
platform.  So it will be best to just keep walking right.

Then you are safe to proceed onto the third platform to reach the top of
Gatekeeper Mountain.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | GATEKEEPER MOUNTAIN > MOUNTAIN TOP                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You can tell our journey here is over because in front of us is Castle
Shadowgate where our final battle will be held at.  Proceed onward!

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CASTLE SHADOWGATE > MAIN ENTRANCE                                |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There are two statues adorning the entrance.  You can speak to them and they
will both give you ideas on what to do next.  The owl statue suggests the
Musical Pipes will have the power to save you.  While the angel statue
suggests you can use either the Magic Sword or Staff of Ages at the Well of
Souls.  She also say you must solve a puzzle which represents the elements of
earth, water, fire, and air.

We will figure out what this means later, now enter inside Castle Shadowgate.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CASTLE SHADOWGATE > HALL OF MONSTERS 1                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Nothing here except menacing statues staring down at you, proceed forward.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CASTLE SHADOWGATE > HALL OF MONSTERS 2                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

More menacing statues.  Now you've come face-to-face with an undead monster
and the lower half of its body.  This undead monster attacks with its claws
and five scratches will kill Erik.  Your fists are useless against the undead
monster when its legs are still walking about.  The door at the end of this
hallway is blocked, therefore you must kill this creature in order to advance.

Start punching at the legs first and it will die after two or three punches,
make sure to avoid its kicks.  If you need to reset your health by retreating
to the previous screen, you can do without worry; the legs won't regenerate.
Then start rapidly punching at the undead monster, since it is now vulnerable.
If you do this correctly, this creature won't even land a single scratch on
you.  Eventually it'll fall after taking more than thirty punches to the face.

Then the doors at the end will open, thus allowing us passage.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CASTLE SHADOWGATE > DOMED CHAMBER                                |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The Pendant of the Elements is a mirror image of this room, as what Lakmir
spoke of.  The four hieroglyphs surrounding the centeral point represents
water, earth, fire, and air mentioned by the angel statue.  And there are
items in your inventory which symbolizes these four elements before you.
We'll proceed one element at a time.

We'll start with the water hieroglyph on the top left.  There are two items
you can use here, the Piranha or Seashell.  If you have followed this
walkthrough, you should have both in your inventory.  The Piranha can be
purchased from the Pet Shop if you have one Gold Piece to spare.  And the
Seashell can be acquired after thawing out Lakmir's Hut.  But if you have ran
out of money, or you have punched Margaretta at the Temple of the Dawn before
she gave you the Pendant of the Elements.  You will have to reset this game as
it is now unwinnable.  Go ahead and use either item on the water hieroglyph.

The earth hieroglyph is on the top right.  Only one item works here and that
is the Piece of Quartz we've obtained from the cavern ledge at the caves.  If
you have followed this walkthrough, you should have it in your inventory.  But
if you have forgotten to pick it up, there is still time to backtrack back to
the caves below the dungeons and pick it up which is blended well into the
ground.  Now use the Piece of Quartz on the earth hieroglyph.

The fire hieroglyph is on the bottom left.  Only one item works here and that
is the Coal we've obtained from the engine room at the Dwarven mines.  If you
have followed this walkthrough, you should have it in your inventory.  But if
you have forgotten to pick it up, there is still time to backtrack back to the
Dwarven mines.  Then go inside the engine room and pick it up in the right
corner of the room.  Now use the Coal on the fire hieroglyph.

Finally the air hieroglyph is on the bottom right.  There are two items you
can use here, the Feather or Canary.  If you have followed this walkthrough,
you should have both in your inventory.  The Feather can be found at the dock
of the city.  And the Canary can be purchased from the Pet Shop if you have
one Gold Piece to spare.  But if you have ran out of money, your only method
is to grab the Feather dropped by the pelican at the dock.  Go ahead and use
either item on the air hieroglyph.

When you have placed all four items onto the hieroglyphs, Erik will either
teleport above to the second floor of Castle Shadowgate or below to the Well
of Souls.  If you have followed this walkthrough, Erik will teleport to the
second floor.

O============================================================================O
| [14] CHAPTER X:  TRAPS EVERYWHERE                                          |
O============================================================================O

Belezaar's last resort...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CASTLE SHADOWGATE > IRIDESCENT ROOM                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now we are at the second floor of Castle Shadowgate.  You can see an organ in
the background and to your left are four colorful, sealed scrolls.  These four
scrolls are not useful to you, but you can go ahead and take all of them if
you like.  If you want to see what these scrolls do, proceed to the organ room
section.  If you decided to not use these scrolls, go ahead and move forward
to the right of this room.  

You should see a closed door before you, but stop right where you stand!
Don't come any closer unless you want to become an Erik pancake!  Beyond that
door is an elephant man and he looks like he means business, but this creature
does have an Achilles' heel.  You know that saying about elephants and their
fear of mice, right?  You seem to have a Squeak Toy on you, use it on
yourself, and watch as a hilarious battle with David and Goliath ensues.

Now you're free to move onward to the gear room.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CASTLE SHADOWGATE > ORGAN ROOM                                   |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

This organ contains various slots where you can insert the colorful scrolls.
Each scroll has a different outcome, all of them not particularly useful.

The Blue Scroll allows Erik to teleport back to the main entrance of Castle
Shadowgate.  This way he can prepare himself for any item that he may have
missed out on such as the Paddleball from the dungeons, the Squeak Toy from
Leo's Curio Shoppe, the Magic Sword from the swamp, or the Staff of Ages from
the Crypt of Ages.  You can always teleport back to the iridescent room from
the domed chamber.  If you have followed this walkthrough thoroughly, this
Blue Scroll is of no use to you.

The Green Scroll plays an eerie tune for Erik, sounds somewhat like a tune
from the first Shadowgate game.  A nice easter egg there.

The Red Scroll is an one way trip to the Grim Reaper.  Once Erik places his
hand into the slot, it will suck him in for a most unpleasant death.

The Yellow Scroll also is an one way trip to the Grim Reaper.  When Erik
places the scroll inside, a ghost of a woman appears and dances with the young
Prince.  The more Erik dances with her, the more he ages, until he ends up
dancing with her for all eternity.  It is quite a beautiful death.

Now that you know what all of the scrolls do, go back to the iridescent room
section above and continue forth.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CASTLE SHADOWGATE > BELOW CLOCK TOWER                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Climb up the ladder to proceed onto the clock tower above.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | CASTLE SHADOWGATE > CLOCK TOWER                                  |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Keep moving forward and we're greeted by the bats again.  To the very end of
the left side is a hole in the boards right above a chain attached to some
counterweights.  If you remember that trapdoor from the dungeons before, you
know that falling into that hole in the boards is bad news.  So use your
"Hand" icon on the chain above the hole to climb down.

| [15] CHAPTER XI:  THE FINAL BATTLE                                         |
O============================================================================O

Get ready to fight the ultimate battle between good and evil...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VOID BETWEEN WORLDS > LEDGE                                      |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You fall down into an area known as the legendary "Void between Worlds",
beyond this ledge is a place known as the Well of Souls.  You should see a
golden gong right next to you.  Since we don't have a gong handle on us, the
next best thing is to use your fists to ring the gong.  Then Charon, the
Ferryman, appears before you.  He tells you that you can only choose one item
from your inventory to bring with you from here on out, so choose wisely.

There are four items in your inventory for you to choose from.  If you want
the Good Ending, select either the Paddleball from the dungeons or the Magic
Sword from the swamp or the Staff of Ages from the Crypt of Ages.

If you want the Bad Ending, choose everything else in your inventory.  Also
the owl statue suggests you should use the Musical Pipes from the Village, but
any other item will work as well.

Once you have selected your item, give it to Charon and he'll cross you over
to the Well of Souls where Belezaar awaits you.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | VOID BETWEEN WORLDS > WELL OF SOULS                              |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

You cannot control Prince Erik at all from here on out, so watch as the
outcome unfolds before you.

If you have selected an item for the Bad Ending, you will see the Grim Reaper
and you will have to restart your game or reload from a previous save.

If you have selected an item for the Good Ending, watch as eventually Erik
best the Warlock Lord using either the Paddleball, Magic Sword, or Staff of
Ages as the narrated epilogue tells us what happens the end of this game.

Congratulations, you've beaten Beyond Shadowgate!

     | GENERAL QUESTIONS                                                |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Q:  DO I NEED TO PLAY THE ORIGINAL SHADOWGATE FIRST?]
· A:  I personally recommend that anyone should play Shadowgate, or the other
      MacVenture titles like Déjà Vu or The Uninvited.  Although playing the
      first game is not necessary needed to understand the game.  However the
      prologue of Beyond Shadowgate spoils the storyline and ending of the
      original Shadowgate to the player.

[Q:  CAN I PLAY SHADOWGATE 64 BEFORE PLAY BEYOND SHADOWGATE?]
· A:  It is not necessary to play Beyond Shadowgate before Shadowgate 64:
      Trials of the Four Towers for the Nintendo 64.  Since Beyond Shadowgate
      have been retcon from the Shadowgate timeline, meaning there was a
      retroactive change in the history.  While Kal Torlin was carried over,
      however some names were changed such as Gwynenthell became Gwynenthel
      and Belezaar is later reincarnated into Lakmir's evil brother, Belzar.
      While it does mention King Aronde, his children and Belezaar don't exist
      according to the book, The House of Dreslin, from Shadowgate 64.  It
      states,  "After the death of the great King Aronde, the succession did
      not proceed well.  With failing health and without an heir, the great
      King had the presence of mind to appoint a successor:  Lord Jair of the
      Westland."  This passage from the book would only made sense if Belezaar
      had killed Erik and Elizabeth.  Although these changes were made, I will
      still recommend Beyond Shadowgate to fans of the Shadowgate series.

[Q:  PRINCE ERIK WALKS TOO SLOW, CAN I MAKE HIM WALK ANY FASTER?]
· A:  Unfortunately, Prince Erik cannot run.  This can be a turn off for some
      new players.  Especially when there are points where you have to
      backtrack, making it seems forever to get from point A to point B.

[Q:  HOW MUCH HEALTH DOES PRINCE ERIK HAVE?]
· A:  Prince Erik does not have a specific set amount of health, though there
      are certain enemies which Erik'll take quite a beating from more than
      others.  If you feel that Erik is going to die soon, move onto the next
      screen to "reset" his health.  Then go back and try fighting them again.

[Q:  WHAT ITEMS ARE MISSABLE THROUGH REGULAR GAMEPLAY?]
· A:  There is only one item you can miss out on.  If you had used the pit as
      a shortcut in the dungeons, you will miss out on getting the Bag, but it
      isn't necessary to win the game.

[Q:  WHAT ITEMS ARE MISSABLE THROUGH KILLING NPCS?]
· A:  There are some items you can miss out on.  If you kill the two young
      Wyverns, you will miss out on the Serpent Idol which allows you to
      obtain the Royal Gauntlet needed for the Magic Sword, but it isn't
      necessary to win the game as long as you can get the other two items for
      the Good Endings.  If you kill the Hermit, you will miss out on the
      Foreign Language Phrase Book needed for a hint from the Mayor about the
      Magical Pipes.  If you kill Margaretta, you will miss out on the Pendant
      of the Elements needed to get the Seashell from Lakmir's Hut, but you
      can use the Piranha instead at the water hieroglyph.  If you kill the
      Sage, you will miss out on his Note to give to Frank who rewards you
      with one Gold Piece.  And if you kill the Viking, you will miss out on
      the Hammer needed to destroy the stone gargoyle blocking the entrance to
      the Temple of Astrid.

[Q:  IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE GAME UNWINNABLE?]
· A:  Yes.  If you did not picked up the Bucket at Erik's dungeon cell and you
      used the pit shortcut in the dungeons, it is unwinnable because you
      cannot get pass the lava flow ahead.  And the other winnable point is if
      you had punched Margaretta before she hands over the Pendant of the
      Elements and if you spent all of your Gold Pieces before purchasing the
      Piranha, therefore you don't have access to the Seashell or the Piranha
      to use at the water hieroglyph.

[Q:  HOW LONG IS THIS GAME?]
· A:  About 4 to 5 hours long.

[Q:  HOW MANY ENDINGS DOES THIS GAME HAVE?]
· A:  There are a total of four different endings, depending on what weapon
      you choose.  You get the Good Ending for choosing the Paddleball, Magic
      Sword, or Staff of Ages.  Anything else will give you the Bad Ending.

[Q:  WHICH ENDING IS CANON?]
· A:  I personally think the Ending where Prince Erik use the Staff of Ages
      against the Warlock Lord is canon.  Due to it always being the ultimate
      weapon used to destroy the evil in every Shadowgate game.

[Q:  ARE THERE ANY CHEAT CODES FOR THIS GAME?]
· A:  There is one which makes Prince Erik have infinite health, the code is
      "84001B:5" and make sure to freeze the value.  I have personally tested
      it with MagicEngine and it works against opponents that attacks you, but
      it does not prevent instant deaths or death scenes.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Q:  WHAT PURPOSE DOES FRANK SERVE?]
· A:  Frank is to only there to give you a slight hint about the Temple of
      Astrid.  That and to offend your nose with his body odor.

[Q:  CAN YOU KILL THAT WOMAN WITH THE SWORD AT THE MAIN STREET?]
· A:  No.  Even if you used the infinite health cheat code, she cannot be
      killed at all.  If you did punch her, considered yourself screwed,
      because she'll chase you throughout Main Street 1 until you're dead.

[Q:  WHAT DOES THAT OWL STATUE MEAN ABOUT THE MUSICAL PIPES?]
· A:  I think the owl statue was hinting at a possibility that you can get a
      Bad Ending if you give the Musical Pipes to Charon the Ferryman.

[Q:  WHAT IS THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF GOLD PIECES YOU CAN HAVE?]
· A:  There are a total amount of seven Gold Pieces for you to spend.  You get
      four Gold Pieces from trading in the two Saphires from the cavern and
      Dwarven mines to Charlie.  You get one Gold Piece each by saving the old
      lady, from the turtle race, and from Leo for returning the Sage's Note.
      For the completest, there is enough money for you to purchase all three
      of the pets and curiosities.  Then you can spend the rest at the Mystic,
      in the public well, or as payment to the bandit.

NARRATOR:
"The first tale of Shadowgate concluded with the evil Warlock Lord battling
the young hero atop the Well of Souls far beneath Castle Shadowgate.  The
Warlock Lord had summoned a being, the Behemoth, from the Netherworlds.  And
with this creature under his power, he plan to conquer the world.  But with a
blast from the fabled Staff of Ages, the young hero broke the Warlock Lord's
control over the beast.

"The Behemoth turned on its former master, and the Warlock Lord was dragged
down into the Netherworld by the very creature he sought to control.

"The young hero, now King of the land, realized that the power within
Shadowgate will always tempt those who would use its magic for evil.  So he
became the first of a dynasty, the 'Line of Kings', who took it as their
mandate to keep safe the power of Shadowgate.

"The second tale of Castle Shadowgate is that of Prince Erik, distantly
descendant of the young hero whose father now protects Shadowgate.  Prince
Erik has for many years traveled abroad, gaining wisdom in preparation for the
day when he assumes his father's role.

"But now in his eighteenth year, a message from his distant homeland reaches
Erik.  It is from his father's new Advisor, Belezaar, and it bears grave news:
'My Liege, it is with great sadness that I inform you that your father, King
Aronde, has been murdered.  While your troops search the land for his
assassin, you must return home and assume your rightful place on the throne.'

"As his ship steers a course toward Kal Torlin shores, Erik's thoughts are
with family he left behind when his journeys began.  He remembers his country,
Kal Torlin, a land of great beauty as well as potential danger.  He remembers
fondly his father, King Aronde, whose wisdom and kindness has guided Kal
Torlin for 30 years.  And perhaps, most fondly of all, he remembers his
younger sister, Elizabeth.

"At last, Erik reaches Kal Torlin, his birthplace, and now, his kingdom.  His
grief over his father's death is all, but forgotten when he sees with how his
beloved sister has grown in his absence.  Erik is introduced to Belezaar, his
father's Advisor.  But Belezaar seems charming and intelligent, Erik still
feels a strange unease about him.  With a shrug, Erik dismisses his odd
apprehension and they begin to discuss Erik's coronation.

"But suddenly, two Soldiers seize Prince Erik!  'The assassin has been
captured!', they exclaimed.  'And the villain said he was hired by Prince Erik
himself.'

"'Couldn't wait to seize the throne, eh, Prince?" shouts Belezaar as they drag
the bewildered Prince to the dungeons.  You'll wear no crown... WITHOUT A
HEAD!'  And this is how Erik's greatest adventure and the second tale of
Shadowgate begins."

The whole interior of this hut is covered with ice.  It is very cold, and must
have been this way for a long, long time.

(EXAMINE TOP SHELF)
These large old books probably concern the arts of wizardry, although it's
impossible to tell because they are in some other language.  You choose not to
take them, out of respect.

old powers are still there.

(TALK TO LAKMIR AFTER WRAITH DISAPPEARS)
LAKMIR       :  "Oh, by the great Seer, it's young Erik!  If you hadn't come
                along, my boy, I might've been frozen for eternity!  But
                listen well to me, that Pendant of the Elements you wear is a
                mirror image of a floor in Castle Shadowgate.  You must find
                that room and solve the puzzle engraved in the floor.
                Moreover in a nearby place, one of your royal ancestors hid
                the Staff of Ages, but the pieces have become scattered over
                the years.  If you can find the pieces and put them together.
                You'll have the means to defeat the Warlock Lord.  May the
                spirit of your father and your ancestors stay with you, my
                boy."

The organ contains various slots.  It's as though you were meant to put
something in it.

The organ keys are oversized.  The whites are of finest marble, the blacks of
jet-black ebony.  Nobody has used them in some time; they're covered with
dust.

                With both your souls a part of me, my power will be
                indomitable."
WARLOCK LORD :  "The forces I will gather shall ravage your world.  All those
                who oppose me shall be ground into the dust.  In fire and
                agony, a new age will begin, THE AGE OF THE WARLOCK LORD!!"
WARLOCK LORD :  "And now, my child.  Let us concern ourselves with my first
                dish.  Oh, don't look so frightened, it will only hurt... FOR
                EVER!!!"  *laughing*
KING ARONDE  :  "I've done all I can, Erik.  The doorway between our worlds is
                closed to me now.  Avenge me, and save all you hold precious!"
WARLOCK LORD :  "Ahh, Prince Erik."
PRINCE ERIK  :  "That's right, Warlock Lord!  It's time to end this madness
                once and for all!!"
WARLOCK LORD :  "Oooh, and just how do you intend to foil my plans, little
                hero?"
PRINCE ERIK  :  "WITH THIS!!!"

PRINCE ERIK  :  "Excuse me...  ARE YOU CRAZY?  I'm about to begin the
                climactic battle between good and evil with the fate of the
                universe riding on the outcome!  And YOU give me nothing to do

NARRATOR:
"Their father avenged, and the world safe once more.  Erik and Elizabeth race
to the surface, leaving behind the Well of Souls and the vanquished Warlock
Lord.  They reach the open air just as the wizard, Lakmir, freed from
Belezaar's imprisoning spell, unleashed all the sorcerer powers at his
disposal; hurling spell after spell at Castle Shadowgate.

"The skies boiled, the mountain shook, and mystic energies crackled in the
air.  The earth below the castle gave forth thousands upon thousands of thorn
encrusted vines, which slid like serpents up the rough brick walls of the
ancient castle, waiving a deadly wall of green around Shadowgate.  Finally,
after the last brick disappeared into the living wall of thorns, each vine
gave forth a single red rose.  The spell was complete, and Shadowgate was
sealed forever.

"With the death of Belezaar and the defeat of the Warlock Lord.  The soldiers,
who have remained loyal to Aronde, came out of hiding and took up arms against
the hideous creatures Belezaar had summoned to terrorize the land.  Led by the
Prince and Princess, they destroyed the last of Belezaar's monstrous allies
and the land was at last at peace.

"A countryside safe once more, Erik and Elizabeth took their rightful places
on the throne, and side by side, they ruled the land.  The task of undoing the
damage Belezaar's schemes have wrought was a long and difficult one, but Erik
and Elizabeth soon proved themselves to be fair and wise rulers, and justice
was restored.

"Inheritors of their father's wisdom and benevolence, the two were quick to
restore Kal Torlin to its former glory, and under their enlightened rule, the
people prospered.  For ages afterward, scholars and historians would tell of
the mighty empire forged by the dual monarchy of Erik and Elizabeth, and bards
would sing of their adventures.  The 'Line of Kings' was at last restored and
would forevermore stand guard over Shadowgate."
